The Via Media Tuned Out

Jim here:

Americans have for the most part, factionalized or tuned out.

When any normal person sees a bunch of children arguing, as long as they are not coming to blows, they let them figure someting out. Adults have better things to do with their time. Suddenly the country has decided that this is no petty argument, and it needs to be solved yesterday.

There are polls to tell us what we want, and the majority is salient and relevant, though it is the minority which will be sighted to prove the intransigent view. Get over this, Washington. Go away, Michele. 

What Americans want is to pay their own bills.


About Jim

I've been leading outdoor environmental education in the YMCA since the 1970s. I love teaching nature, history, current events, being a dad, fixing stuff, groups, and general thinking.
